I have backups of the data that can't be reproduced. I just don't have room for some of the larger files (CD ISO's, DVD rips, etc). It would be inconvenient to lose the data but far from catastrophic. One goal of this exercise is to get some redundancy, but at least as important are the goals of learning more about something I haven't used before (graid3) and getting a larger volume on a limited budget. Besides, trickery is where the fun comes in. :) I appreciate the response, though. It's a point I might have raised myself.
